Schedule Networking Time. Schedule the time that you will spend networking to find an adoption situation. Take a full or part day a week to network. You could take a trip to neighboring city or a local college or university to network. You could make posters as well as your adoption networking "business" cards.

Enlist the Help of Friends. Get friends and family to take time to help network in their area.
